. . . found more inspiration




Yesterday on the way to and from the post office I wandered around some different areas in downtown. Wonderful photo opportunities. Like the boarded-up window here. . .





and the surface texture of this old retaining wall. . .





and the backside of this garage (this photo could use some more editing, I think. . .)






and once again, one of my favorite subjects, the dumpster, this one completely rusted. . .





and finally, this kind of creepy picture. . . it is a boarded-up doorway. In the glass you can see the reflection of trees across the street. I can see monsters' claws or bat wings . . . disturbing but cool. Enjoy the day and have a great weekend.

Your photos are works of art in and of themselves...

These are great. I especially like the last one and the one you think needs more editing. The last one has so much to see. It will take more than one look to see it all. The tree reflection is perfect. This would be a wonderful inspiration for a collage.

I agree with Jazz, they're already art...I've gotta find me some alleys!

That last one Mary! Oh wow! I think it could be a finished piece just the way it is. Print it and mail it my way!! Got your message. Can't wait for my new art to arrive. I am a real fan!
